EMAG Coffee Morning for Key Stage One parentsDecember 2017
We had another coffee and cake morning for EMAG parents this week, this time involving Key Stage 1 pupils and parents. EMAG is an ethnic minority achievement grant teacher who specialises in helping children who have English as an additional language.
The children had a wonderful time baking cupcakes for their important visitors, at the same time learning to understand and interpret instructions from their recipes. It was also a valuable visit for the parents who had a chance to see the resources that the EMAG teachers use.

Computing updateDecember 2017
This half term our digital leaders – Year 6 ‘senior’ digital leaders have been training new digital leaders for the Years 3-5 classes. Those classes now have two digital leaders in each one – trained to help their classmates and teacher with computing problems and looking after our resources.
Year 6 have had a series of lessons on programming using Sphero – a robotic ball. They have coded Sphero to draw out various 2D shapes whilst it also ‘speaks’ and tells you about some of the properties of the shape. You can see photos of this on their gallery page here.
Meanwhile Year 2 were collecting data about each other. They used Google Forms on the iPads for this. They then used their data to create pictograms using the laptops. More photos can be found on their gallery page here.
